Obviously not right now but when Wenger leaves the manager coming in will be able to take them back over Spuds, tough opportunity to miss out on

Think Spurs are a big club but not sure if it was intentional to not call them one in the title. 

Eventually he will. Things seem quite good at Spurs for him right now though so don't see why he would leave for anyone. 

I do wonder if that will change after the World Cup and if any international opportunities come about (for example if Argentina have a bad World Cup and Sampaoli is sacked?). 

I think his next destination will be Real Madrid but god knows when.

I hope not. I wish more people would tell Real to fuck off. I'd love to see Poch do it.

Pochettino has repeated various times that there are two clubs he will always say NO to.  Arsenal and FC Barcelona for obvious reasons...  His move to Real Madrid if he keeps going like he is will happen without a shadow of a doubt.  If they (Real) call him, I doubt he'd say no even as soon as the end of this season.

It's clearly just a wind up topic xD

What's the attraction of a two year max stint at a cub that everyone in the world is sick of and that is certain to end up with you being fired?

In South America Real Madrid is the pinnacle of football anywhere in the world.

This is one of his (Pochettino) quotes the other day and it's not the first time he's said something of the ilk;

"There's something about that club, something where just the name gives you goose pimples on your skin.  It's the maximum to aspire to"

But yes, you do either end up getting sacked even when winning at Real Madrid because clubs like that expect more than just winning.  It's tough and you get run through the mill.

Balon thinking Poch could go to Madrid in the summer xD Not worried in the slightest about losing him - he also said he was ready to sign a 10-15 year contract at Spurs.

He did also say this!

To be honest...  I'd rather he stays at Spurs mate. ;)

He probably would go to a bigger club.

He's a smart man, he knows he's already hit his ceiling with Spurs finishing second. Players groans about wage structures meaning departures won't help, either. 

Ultimately, he'll have a choice soon enough because he's good enough to have his pick. Stay at Spurs for another 10-15 years and continue to win nothing but plaudits for how they play or go out and manage one of the elite clubs and win trophies.

I think if you guys won the title or the champions league this year he'd be more likely to move on. 

However incremental progress and cementing second place and he'd still feel like there was unfinished business.

Not aimed as a dig mate, doesn't necessarily have to be a big club, maybe someone similar to yourselves but with title winning ambitions like Leicester

Mad how people hang on the every word of what managers and players say in public. Especially those managers or players who have no prior loyalty to the club. If they get an offer from someone higher up the food chain they'll be off.

Conte won't be around for long? 

Where's he going? Oh that's right, agreed to go to Inter apparently. Which came up around this time last year after he got sacked

Its the Inter way mate

They expect someone like Diego Simeone and Antonio Conte but end up with Walter Novellino.

If I was him I'd only leave for Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern, maybe City or Juventus.

If United are somewhat back to their former selves trophy wise in a couple of years add that to the list.

+1 this. 

Also,  I believe Kane will leave before Poch does.

If he keeps going at the rate he is going now there's no reason to believe people will come in with offers in the summer for his services or maybe even before that.

Spurs are a big club, just missing having something in their Trophy Room regularly.

Yes he would leave if opportunity came his way of managering a club who just do that, win something regular.

However, I believe to have that opportunity, he must win something substantial at Spurs as his reputation of a man who allows potential young players to flourish, isnt something those regular winners are worried about.

Think a team like Real or PSG could make a huge offer next summer without a doubt

People say Wenger has an easy ride which is bollocks as he's been a media target for near 10 years. At Tottenham, you get worshipped for nearly doing things. If he wants to be taken seriously he needs to move to a big club, being a former PSG player he may make a move there.

Pochettino to PSG, Kane to Real Madrid, Eriksen to Barcelona, Tottenham to the bin.

The difference is Wenger does have an easy ride by his own club owners. But yes he has taken a lot from the press and that is now filtering down to the fans.  A lot of it is his own doing though.

Wenger has taken a lot from the media but he's also been defended for years by the media like he was some sort of untouchable football guru.  He could say anything and it would be treated like gospel.  He's started to take more and more flak from the press when they saw it was all now a load of rubbish.
